Need to get in touch with a frame supplier fast? Start here.

We've just unveiled a new feature on Frames Data :  the Directory!

It’s a new search engine that will return the manufacturer contact information for any of the 600+ brands included in Frames Data.  It’s fast and easy!

Frames Data Directory Tool


How does it work?

All you have to do is type a brand or manufacturer name intp the search box, make your selection when you find the right one, and BOOM! there is all the contact information.

Phone numbers, addresses, fax numbers, website links, and e-mail addresses are all among the possible ways to make contact with a brand. We provide them all.


You don't even need to know the first letter!

The directory has the ability to auto-populate brand and manufacturer names to assist you in finding the right information. All you have to do is begin typing and a list will be brought up that fits your search.

Just typing in the letter “a” will give you the complete list of brands and manufacturers whose name contains the letter “a”. As you keep typing, the list will get smaller and smaller until you find exactly what you are looking for.

For example, if you look up "Hu" the Directory will give you a list of all the companies whose names contain "hu". Now if you type in "Hugo", the Directory will give you the result "BOSS Hugo Boss" despite the fact that you did not type in "BOSS" before "Hugo". 


Need to know what brands a manufacturer carries?

The Directory can help you there too! By searching for a specific manufacturer, the Directory will pull up all of the brands made by that manufacturer.


What are you waiting for?

The functionality of the directory can be used by any Frames Data subscriber! All you have to do is sign in!

Check it out for yourself!
